'"The best - the only - way of making sense of the mind and consciousness is through evolution by natural selection."
Daniel Dennett is one of the most famous and distinguished philosophers of our time. He is the Director of the Centre for Cognitive Studies and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University. He is widely known as one of the "Four Horsemen of New Atheism", alongside Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and the late Christopher Hitchens.
His writing - including the celebrated Consciousness Explained and Darwin's Dangerous Idea -represents some of the most important work in the philosophy of mind today, grounded in rigorous empirical research, evolutionary theory, and a materialist framework. Dennett's most recent book I've been thinking explores his career and lifelong scientific fascinations.
"How unfair for one man to be blessed with such a torrent of stimulating thoughts." - Richard Dawkins
